Dotemu’s already had a busy E3 and it’s only just begun! Not only did they debut Metal Slug Tactics, a game which I absolutely need to see arrive on Switch at some point, but their upcoming Mr. X Nightmare DLC for Streets of Rage 4 got eight minutes of gameplay starring its three new playable characters.

Shiva, Max Thunder, and Estel Aguirre all look like they’ve got sauce. Shiva in particular is making a strong impression, with those air combos and palm strikes looking clean. As a reminder, Mr. X Nightmare will introduce a Survival Mode, new moves and character customization, additional weapons and enemies, and original music from the always appreciated Tee Lopes.

No release date was given for the (paid) DLC drop, previously stated to be coming later this year alongside a free update featuring a New Mania+ difficulty, color palettes, and a training system. Look forward to hitting the streets of Wood Oak City then!
